This sugar cane brandy was my absolute favorite and a rare treat if you can find it. Pairs perfectly with a fine cigar.
Mount Gay Sugarcane Brandy is not brandy but a rum, and is now discontinued by the distillery. The term "brandy" has something to do with the distillation process, but by law this term cannot be used in the United States. If you can still find it, the bottle will sport a white or off-white label with the phrase "sugarcane rum" on it. An excellent rum great for mixing but not at all bad straight. A very nice offering from Barbados..
Not had this for many years now but this got me into the finer rums of the world. What a joy it was with my first sip under a warm night on the beach in Barbados on the Maxwell Coast Road. Brought a few bottles back on each of a couple of trips and had a friend bring back several for me until his passing.
Distilled using fermented molasses in used whiskey and bourbon barrels, this rum really satisfies. Hard to find rum along with its predecessor simply called sugar cane rum.
Smooth with notes of pear and apple, warm baking spices with hints of woody expressions.
Enjoyed this neat or it could be mixed! Definitely the most underrated rum in the Mount Gay line of nice rums.
Mount Gay Sugar Cane Brandy Rum
To my knowledge Mount Gay stopped producing this Rum in 2010 but I was fortunate enough to find a couple of bottles in Barbados in 2011.
I recently sampled this rum (43% ABV) and while I initially assumed this rum was more intended for mixing, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it stands on its own as a quality sipping rum. Fruity flavours with a touch of cinnamon, this is indeed a very good rum. It is really a shame it is no longer in production as it would have easily become one of my favorite rums.
